Bell’s well aware that vintage is always in, which is why they resurrected the Moto-3 and Bullitt helmets. Their retro headgear continues to be a success and this fall they’re adding several new colorways and designs, in addition to unveiling another vintage dome defender: the Eliminator.
Drawing inspiration from auto-racing helmets of the past while integrating modern technology, Bell’s Eliminator is made with a fiberglass composite, a ‘ProVision’ anti-fog face shield with Class 1 optics, a dark smoke shield, and speaker pockets for communication devices. The helmet features a tall chin bar, metal-ringed intake holes for on and off-road racing, and a design to keep dust from infiltrating your helmet. The Eliminator is available for pre-order, but the other classic helmets with new retro designs, including neo-classic racing stripes, are up for grabs now. Our favorite of the bunch is the Bell Bullitt Command Helmet inspired by the original Bell Star from the late 1960s, which was the first full-face helmet, setting a new safety standard.
